WHAT IS FUSION ENERGY,NUCLEAR FUSION AND NUCLEAR FISSION?
FUSION ENERGY is the fundamental source of energy on which all the stars light up and radiate energy for billions of years.We all know that we cant live without the energy or we can say power source. From food to living and making electronic devices work we need energy. You must have experienced a day or some hours of your house without power, as a result nothing works after all, so just think if the whole world becomes power less.Humanity can only survive if there is energy, Humans will exist till the energy exists, so Scientists day by day are finding different sources of energy and power so that we can survive. Some of them saw how Sun ,a giant ball of massive amount of power is living more than billions of years without any decrease in its energy.This is known as FUSION ENERGY ,which is the main and the most important source of energy of universe where two nuclei of small atoms combine to form a different nuclei in the form of plasma which in result to compensate the equation the striped of particles move very fast which in result release a huge amount of energy. So just think if we make a sun on earth!
We all have seen the movie Spider man 2 in which doctor octopus did an experiment of nuclear FUSION ENERGY experiment which intended to destroy the NEW YORK city ,but hold on this experiment of fusion energy is not a bomb like that but yes the process is kind of similar. So you can imagine the amount of energy it created. Just think if this fusion energy is finally proven then we can make trains work for months with an amount of energy equal to a glass of water. Yes it looks like impossible but the Scientists have calculated and reached this theory. It is close to magic or miracle isn’t it!
WHY WE NEED FUSION ENERGY?
FUSION ENERGY experiment reactor needs hydrogen and helium to perform reactions which are of different isotopic properties and especially helium which is very less present on the earth surface. But we can find helium in huge amount on moon due to the solar winds deposits it has abundance of helium for the reaction.
ON GOING RESEARCH ON FUSION ENERGY
MIT researchers experimented the FUSION ENERGY and reached millions of degrees upto some extent the project named Alcator C-Mod was going good until it was not being funded and eventually stopped due to the excessive cost of the project. Now ITER(International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) in which similar device named TOKAMAK in France is being experimented where more than 30 country and thousands of Scientists have collaborated to make this real.
FUSION ENERGY can be our next rich source,After all we all know that crude oil and fuel from fossil fuels are not going to exist longer are soon going to wash out completely with this rapid and speedy consumption. Some countries have already running out of fuel and are promoting sources of energy like solar energy and other sources which are renewable and can be used again and again. But talking about solar energy we all know the coming time or in next 20 to 30 years we cant just survive on solar energy as it is not a reliable source on which we can fully depend upon.
ENERGY NEEDS TO BE SAVED
Everything we make comes with a price that we have to pay and this experiment has costed billions of dollars for this project of FUSION ENERGY,at this moment production cost is more than the result we are getting or the yield.At last we should understand that its only for our good our Human race that we are talking here should think twice before doing or wasting any source of energy. Its all about making a change. We are not animals and have been given a brain which has infinite number of powers in terms of intelligence and should respect that in every way we can.
